For the holidays, I havee several peppermint cookie recipes that I adore

Definitely going to try this recipe, but my favorite cookie is a Molasses Cookie, nice and big and soft with some ginger is perfect.

I think my favorite cookie recipe is Cappuccino Royales or maybe the pumpkin spice sugar cookies, which are so delicate, they never make it anywhere unbroken, except into my mouth!

Every year I make Viennese vanilla crescents for Christmas. Everyone seems to like them m and I am often asked for the recipe. I always bing them to our neighbourhood cookie exchange.
